“I will listen to Abe's words sincerely, and in turn, do my best to explain the thoughts of Moon and myself," Lee told Kyodo News in Seoul, adding that has requested a friendly letter from Moon to deliver to Abe.”

Nice change of tone; however, Abe knows what he wants and already explained it to you.

Could S.Korea explain the 165 & plus deliveries that are unaccounted for and their whereabouts or not?

While you are at it, explain to Abe your Anti-Japan campaign and what you gained from it.

At least he's professional about it.

Unfortunately Moon is unstable and never to be trusted.

Could S.Korea explain the 165 & plus deliveries that are unaccounted for and their whereabouts or not?

While you are at it, explain to Abe your Anti-Japan campaign and what you gained from it.

The answers to these questions will underscore Japan's actions and leave South Korea nowhere to go but agree to all of Abe's terms. So I would expect Lee to dance around them like a ballerina and emphasise South Korea's pro-North stance, which won't do the relationship any good at all. So that being the case I think South Korea's hopes of ever returning to a relationship with the 'super-tolerant' Japan of 1965 - 2019 is gone forever.

The forecast is not good: Moon's approval rating hit an all time low, and there is only one solution for that, the Japan scapegoat

From what I can see, a lot of younger Koreans don't want to play that game anymore. I think it's wearing thin, and we could see some improvement once Moon joins his predecessors in disgrace or prison.

But the latest spat was kicked off by a court decision in Seoul, not by Moon or any part of the SK government.

I've pointed this out many times but you choose to ignore the fact and roll on with your nationalist rhetoric.

I've been downvoted probably over a hundred times for posting this fact, but not ONE poster has been able to explain the line of reasoning behind the claim. My guess - this time won't be any different.

That May have been the spark, but Moon laid out kindling of anti-Japan hatred, in the middle of an existing puddle of oil of anti-Japanese sentiment in the general population.

We can certainly point out how he is to blame even if he didn’t actually light the spark that caused the forest fire.
